Love everything about the car, it's perfect for my family.

2012 Kia Rio SX

I love everything about my car, it has been extremely reliable, comfort is great, I have a family of 3 and it is fine for us. My daughters stroller fits in the back which is great. Performance overall is great. Only disadvantage is that it doesn't have power windows or locks, but that is the way it was bought for me.

Kia Rio a smart car that gets great gas mileage; performs and handles well!

2012 Kia Rio SX

We have not had any serious problems with our Kia Rio; gets great gas mileage; it is getting older and now the things that have to be repaired are more costly. Have loved our Kia Rio. We have had proper maintenance on it and replaced the usual; tires, filters and brakes. Service regularly!
